Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine if there was a significant difference in the third and fourth grade Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) Communication Arts assessment scores of students in schools who participated in the Partnerships in Comprehensive Literacy (PCL) Model and students in schools who did not. Archival MAP Communication Arts assessment scores from 622 students in six Title I schools in a Midwest metropolitan district were compared. Although some schools who participated in the PCL Model scored slightly higher on the assessment than schools that did not, the results from the Independent t-Test indicated that there was not a significant difference in scores of students in schools who participated in the PCL Model, and students in schools who did not.
